Eyelid surgery candidates generally have the following qualities, which may vary for each person:
- Good general health
- Over 18 years old
- Excess skin and/or fat of the eyes
- Droopy or sagging tissue
As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Chaboki will tailor the eyelid surgery as appropriate for you. Eyelid surgery is customized to your degree of facial aging, underlying anatomy, and most importantly, your personal goals. Some patients require a limited lift, while other patients would benefit from extensive procedures. A nonsurgical lift may be appropriate for some patients too, especially those with very limited time for recovery. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can Dr. Chaboki help determine appropriate options customized for you.
Patients with some medical conditions or medications may not be good plastic surgery candidates. In addition, those with unrealistic expectations should not have treatments.
